Theme: “People-Driven, Data-Fuelled, Service-Oriented”
For more than 50 years, DPI has captured the voice of the public sector IM, IT, and Digital community, and this year is no different. Over the past two years, our industries have faced big challenges throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as they made the pivot to virtual services for Canadians, virtual work for employees, and the rapid development of pandemic-focused services. Our annual Professional Development Week will be held via a hybrid model on May 11-13, 2022. This means we will be back at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa with a smaller number of delegates and we will also be streaming the events through our online platform.
This event will provide important opportunities to learn, network, and connect with industry colleagues. That’s why we are excited to launch our theme: “People-Driven, Data-Focused, Service-Oriented”. This year, we look forward to presenting you a variety of keynotes and seminars that will expose you to the ways our public sector community is empowering employees, the innovative ways they are using data, and importantly how they are placing service to Canadians at the centre of all they do.
Our seminars will focus on topics our Affiliates care about, like technology, skill-building, mental health, and the importance of diversity and inclusion.
Each year, DPI holds its annual Professional Development Week (PDW), a premier training event for IM/IT/Digital professionals. PDW is attended by 3400+ delegates ranging from technical analysts and policy makers to senior managers who all share a common goal: self-development.
Delegates attend PDW for its effective mix of technology and management sessions where they can gain insight into the business, technology and people sides of IM, IT and Digital. PDW provides insight into current technology and management trends, public sector IM/IT/Digital directions and tools and methods to survive and thrive in an increasingly complex environment. All this coupled with excellent networking opportunities, and superb social and dinner events. We are confident that PDW is the best value for your training dollar and we strongly encourage employees to make this part of their annual learning plans and for managers to endorse their participation.
